I promised an update soon and I'm tardy. Here is the rest of the European trip! I'm joined in this update by my assistant, Ayni. We're reporting in more detail than usual, since people often ask what I do.
A global summit that blends spirituality with societal transformation
As lawyers, we are often at the forefront of societal challenges – or perhaps we wish we could be. Many of us wonder how to be most effective in our efforts. As integrative lawyers, we long for more compassion, consciousness, and love in our interactions.
Well, amidst finals (and this time is the last time…) I’ve been re-calibrating from an amazing trip. It was four days spent at a Zen center just outside of San Francisco, essentially in the middle of a Redwood forest. What for, you ask? For inspiration, collaboration and re-generation. My time was spent with around 30 lawyers and law students, all at different points in their lives and careers. Not everyone is even studying law in a formal school environment. These are out-there folks doing incredible things… From conscious contracts to sharing law and mindfulness education, my sense of why I am entering this field and how I fit into it were strengthened through the community we all formed.
